Editor’s Notes: It’s been a good year – or a bad one if you think the release schedule has been oversaturated – for the Nike Dunk Low. Between releases like “Camo Pack”, “5 on It” by UNDEFEATED, “The 50” by Virgil Abloh and a spectrum of blocked colors, we are spoiled for choice.
Sadly, not all Swoosh offerings are constructed the same, with some of the more desirable silhouettes being exclusive to gender or age. Adult Dunk fans who were looking for a pink colourway to add to their collection have been disappointed so far, with the most recent pair only arriving in grade school (GS) size.
Thankfully, Nike is gearing up to release two almost pink iterations of the Dunk Low, with a pair for kids and adults. Both colors retain the traditional white leather base of the silhouette and combine it with alternating shades of pink – “Archeo Pink” and “Velvet Pink”.
For adults, the “Archeo” features matte and darker contrasts that are a bit more wearable; and closer to the Dunk colors we are used to. The second colourway is exclusive for kids with a paler finish than its full-size counterpart, almost appearing to give off a velvet sheen.
Like the GS version from the start of the year, the “Velvet Pink” iteration features pops of red on the tongue, heel, and insoles.
With these upcoming options set to complete the full-size running offering, you can finally get pink Nike Dunk Lows for the whole family.
